Enrolling in Part B too Early
Whether you enroll in Medicare part B depends on whether or not you have a group health plan at the time. If you do not have a group health plan then you will want to enroll when you turn 65. By doing this you will avoid a late fee for enrolling later and avoid the risk of not having Medicare Part B coverage for up to a year. However if you are still on a group health plan when you turn 65, then you should consider staying on that group health plan, because it will save you the money of paying a costly part B premium. You should check with your Human Resources department in order to find out if your plan needs you to have Part B coverage. So if you are about to enroll in Medicare and have questions, then be sure to contact the Medicare Advisor of Louisiana, and we will help you through this confusing and overwhelming time.
